      This turtle brooch is gorgeous!!! I know Giovanni, for their rose pins, but had no idea they designed beauties like this. That green is absolutely stunning!

      Just love his blue and black colours and how they work in different lights. You have, Jenni, the hottest turtles in town !~

      With thanks to you all for the turtle love

      Special thanks for your terrific praise

      DejaVu, the pearly green really does make that back shell shine & brings this turtle to life. I will have to check out Giovanni's rose pins as I'm mostly familiar with their animals

      Scott, glad this guy is one of your favorites he scores pretty high with me as well

      Phil you're right, there is some black in the turtle enamel it's really a tricolor shell, good eye! I'm delighted that you enjoy my turtle collection, I like them because each one is creatively different

      Really nice, cool little turtle! I love the shiny shell he has, I know it's a mosaic piece but it reminds me of abalone? He's simplistic, but he is still very eye-catching and bright! ^^

      Special thanks to you all for the kind love

      Lauren his shell is very like abalone, with the shiny green & blue colors. I love a brightly colored turtle & glad you do too, thanks much for your awesome praise for this little guy

      Thanks Jenni for posting this beautiful turtle..My mother has a collection of turtle brooches and this looks exactly like one she has that isn’t marked.
    9. Newfld Newfld, 9 months ago
      JB I'm so happy that this turtle helped your mom i.d. hers, it's funny how sometimes the jewelry maker marks their piece, and other times not, I find that alot. Thanks my friend for your always kind words & support you are the best :)
